Village News: Happy 2010!

Hello and a very happy 2010 to you! Hope you had a lovely Christmas and are reading this from the comfort of your oak panelled study whilst supping a fine whisky and reveling in your new elasticated jeans.

To kick-start the new decade, we've lined up a rip-roaring series of fascinating and fun events. We promise you this; it's going to be fun!

Next Main Gathering - Tues 26 January

New Year Drinks and Bowling @ All Star Lanes, Brick Lane!

To celebrate the start of a new decade, we've arranged something that extra special: our main event at the 1950s, American themed, All Star Lanes: a brand new venue that's just opened up on fashionable Brick Lane!

We expect 500 attendees; not only because it's one of the coolest venues in town, but because we'll have exclusive use - all night long - of the entire venue with 2 bars, 4 private lanes, a private bar, a private DJ and dance floor, and a private lounge! This isn't just bowling - it's our own plush, private, luxurious, lounge and club! Complimentary drinks will be served on arrival before 8pm, and we'll have a live DJ in from 8pm, too!

This one is not to be missed! To get on the guest-list, click here.
